    Will Storybook Land Canal Boats ever add new Character Housings?

    Well the last time we had a SBLCB rennovation was back in 1992 and that was too add Aladdin and The Little Mermaid. Do you think it's time to add new show scenes like housings from our newer generation Disney animated films such as Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mulan, Tarzan, etc.

    That actually sounds like a good idea, B&B and Mulan would definitely fit in nicely, and it would bring some new appeal to the ride.

    This ride was updated in the mid-90's with the Aladdin and LM scenes. Beast's castle somewhere along the ride would fit in nicely though.

    So it'd be like an alternate version of Hong Kong Disneyland's Small World

    For sure Disney wanted to do something else with the flower blanket.

    I think it should be updated. 101 Dalmations house should be there!

    I'm pretty sure Belle's house is there.

    Ehhh, I don't think it is. Maybe you're confusing it with Snow White's or Alice's.


    I'd love to see an update with more recent Disney films...Beauty and the Beast would be a great addition, and I'd love to see Lion King as well.

    Yeah, that blanket is rather lackluster, IMO (yes I know what it's from, I watched those shorts as a kid). I think the area could be utilized in a better way with such classics as mentioned.

    I don't know...beauty and the beast, sleeping beauty maybe, and 101 dalmations make sense to me, but I don't want them to force anything there that doesn't really need to be there.

    For Tarzan they could just add some more vines and music or sound effects under one of the bridges you go through.

    I really love the idea of adding more to the ride. That's my favorite ride ever. I just wish we could actually go through the Little Mermaid part, that'd be awesome.

    Even though it was made before Disney's take over of Pixar, I think Toy Story is actually considered a classic now because it has been 10 years and still going strong. Technically I do think now that Disney owns Pixar they also own Toy Story outright, but I don't know that for sure.

    I think B&B music plays as you go under the canopy of lights right before the Cave of Wonder, if you want to count that as Beauty & The Beast...

    The Forbidden City (is that what is? or maybe it just looks like it) from Mulan wouldn't look to out of place as it is a castle in a sense.

    There are several English things on tour, they should have a replica of Virginia Company ship in London for Pocahontas, or just recreate Virginia (and it's "high cliffs") with village with the giant willow for Pocahontas.

    Other films...
    Notre Dame (its on the Seine River in real life, so it would fit)
    Hercules, the greek isles would make this another fitting movie scene

    I don't see films by Pixar or Disney CGI films or films like Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch, Atlantis, Home on the Range, etc or any of the last of traditionally animated films fitting in as most of the films that are featured in the ride are European fairy tales and folk tales.
